Top 3 Most Common Drug Injury Causes

Top 3 Most Common Drug Injury Causes

by Norris Injury Lawyers | March 4th, 2014

Drug injuries are a serious problem in the United States. Research shows that more than 1.3 million Americans are affected by a problem with a specific drug or dosage annually. The Birmingham Drug Injury Lawyers explain the three most common drug injury causes are:

  • Medication Errors – These mistakes occur when too much or not enough of a drug is given to a patient. They can occur when the patient is given the wrong medication as well. Read more here.
  • Unforeseen Side Effects – When a drug manufacturing company fails to identify all health risks, which leads to a patient being harmed.
  • Manufacturing Mistakes – Such errors can include omitting a necessary ingredient in a drug’s recipe or adding the wrong type of ingredient. These mistakes also include contamination of medications during the manufacturing process.

Norris Injury Lawyers and their team of Birmingham Personal Injury Lawyers explain that asking your doctor any and all questions you may have regarding your prescriptions is one way to stay safe. Also, checking for outstanding recalls and examining medications for problems before taking them will also improve safety.
